Top speed 15mph. 0-15 in 7 seconds. And for that you get to look like a twonk.

Meh, its just an electric motocompo basically.


Exept at least on a motocompo you can pretend its a laugh to ride and not just a mobility scooter in a dress.

It's a motorized Trunki! Looks fun but possibly slightly silly. And I imagine you couldn't take it on a plane.

Does it have space inside the box for luggage? Or is it full of batteries, motors and nails etc?
